Dodgers get good news on Broxton, Kuo
CINCINNATI -- There was positive news on Sunday regarding disabled Dodgers relievers Jonathan Broxton and Hong-Chih Kuo.

Broxton, out since May 4 with a bruised elbow, has begun throwing off a mound and reports no soreness in his elbow. Broxton said he has been limited to throwing 85 mph and feels he can throw harder, but he concedes that he'd rather take extra time to be sure he's ready than return too soon and reinjure the elbow.

Broxton said nobody is sure what caused the bruise. He said one theory is that an adjustment in Spring Training of where he was standing on the rubber caused the problem, though he abandoned the adjustment before the season started and he still came up sore.

Kuo, out since May 10 with anxiety disorder, continues throwing to hitters at the club's Arizona training complex and is nearing a Minor League rehab assignment, manager Don Mattingly said.

"I've heard talk about him starting a rehab. It sounded like it was coming," said Mattingly. "The timetable is going to be different than a guy with a wrist or ankle or being physically ready. This will be more of Kuo being able to say, 'I'm ready.'"
